Ricky Gervais took to his blog to explain why he quit Twitter (and I can't say that I disagree with a lot that he has to say). As you all know, Ricky will be hosting the 67th Annual Golden Globes this Sunday night
Ricky Gervais writes, "As you may know I've stopped with Twitter. I just don't get it I'm afraid. I'm sure it's fun as a networking device for teenagers but there's something a bit undignified about adults using it. Particularly celebrities who seem to be showing off by talking to each other in public. If I want to tell a friend, famous or otherwise what I had to eat this morning, I'll text them. And since I don't need to make new virtual friends, it seemed a bit pointless to be honest.
"I suppose it was meant to be a bit of a marketing tool for The Globes, but they are watched by 25 million people in America alone and maybe 300 million people world wide - tweeting about it would be a drop in the ocean. Also I've got the website and I don't have to restrict things to 140 characters. My tweeting was becoming like a tabloid version of this blog, and I couldn't even put important stuff like this up."
